Visiting Wainuiomata is as kiwi as!

Find your next adventure

We’re all the stuff you love about a small town, plus all the scenery & thrills that you love about New Zealand

We’re an adventure wonderland with a whole lot of heart – come find out what the buzz’s all about!

Quick buzz

Get an adrenaline fix or a scenic boost with an easy half or full day escape.

Grab a horse trek, quad bike ride, round of golf or quick walk in the stunning native bush.  Then head back around Wellington Harbour to the great cafes and boutique shopping of Petone and Wellington.

Overnight adventure

Escape the city overnight & go wild.

Ride a horse, drive a quad, tee-off, bike the trails, hike the forest or walk the coast to see the seals. Then sleep under the stars or in a soft bed. Wake up to this stunning valley before heading back to the coolest little capital.  


Really go wild with a few days exploring stunning native New Zealand bush where kiwis roam. Discover the untamed coast with fur seals, surfing and lighthouses.

Try an adventure with horse riding, quad bikes or a high ropes challenge. Relax at the open-air summer pool or try a game of golf – both set against lush native bush.

Do it kiwi-style with tents and campfires  or pick a cosy retreat 

“It’s heartland New Zealand”
